A couple of my palms that were unaffected by our past severe winter.
Good morning to all, question about my little Bismarckia. Its putting out new fronds and one of my fronds has already opened but the truck out the frond is still short? Will the frond get larger length wise? Is it normal that the new frond has already opened up prematurely? Should the new fronds be larger than the previous ones? Thank you.
Only in 7.5 months!

I was hoping it would get to the current size in a couple of years, but it took just a little over half a year
It seems dates are perfect for Austin, which happens to have somewhat similar climate and identical solar exposure to the middle east. Also they don't seem to mind the alkaline soil.
By the way this is from a date I ate a few years back
I recently acquired 16 new additions to my palm collection. I now have 60 species in my garden. Some are experimental. Hopefully they will adapt to my 9b dry climate. I’m currently busy installing irrigation which will make watering easier.
Here is a list of my new palms:
chamaedorea elegans, tepejelote, cataractarum & seifrizii
caryota maxima & mitis
Arenga engleri *
Coccothrinax sp ?
Raphis excelsa *
Wodyetia bifurcata *
* Already present in my collection

Looks like my jubaeopsis decided it wants company. I've been noticing this extra robust spear emerging over the past couple of months. It turns out that it's a double spear.
